    Pros

    Decent pay...ummmm what else? Hmmm....I'd have to say nothing!

    Cons

    External employees are EXPENDABLE, more than in other companies. Management cares little for their contractors. I witnessed blatant racism, poor treatment of handicapped people (both of whom were let go on some phony pretense.) Management's attitude is 'they're contractors, we can do whatever we want' [not according to the EEOC people I talked to.]

    Managers make mistakes then place the blame on contractors and fire them with no notice.

    Contractors manage contractors and make hire/fire decisions. HR backs up the decisions and makes no effort to get both sides of the story, or treat people fairly.

    All in all, a toxic work environment. Stay away, far away!

    Advice to Management

    Word gets around. Your negligence of your large contractor population is becoming common knowledge. You are fast becoming a least desired company to work for.

    I worked at Sanofi Pasteur (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, great team, 401K match, company car, gas card, 3 weeks off plus 1 week company shut down, ortho, dental and medical

    Cons

    Constant manufacturing and distribution issues make it hard to sell products. Not enough admin time to get the job done in a reasonable time frame.

    Advice to Management

    They should be more transparent about company issues. They should also not sugar coat everything and pretend like it is all ok. When there are issues outside reps control they should adjust quotas.

    I have been working at Sanofi Pasteur (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    -Company is working to have a more diverse field sales force
    -Reimbursement for gym membership
    -Great company to work for if you are right out of college

    Cons

    -Job has become more of servicing accounts rather than actually selling to them.
    -Company has found ways to not pay entire sales force for earned bonuses based upon BOI.
    -Salaries are drastically below industry standard and annual increases of 1% are seen as a good thing by company standards.
    -Sanofi Pasteur was a great company to work for about five years ago, since then there have been consistent supply issues on nearly every product from Pentacel to Flu.

    Advice to Management

    Be more honest with your employees and

    Pros

    You get to feel like the most intelligent being in the room if it's filled with district and regional managers.
